The short was written and directed by Katoki (mechanical designs in Gundam franchise, Super Robot Wars) based on a short story by Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira, Memories, Steamboy).
Short Peace is an omnibus of four short films by Otomo, Shuhei Morita (Kakurenbo, Freedom), Hiroaki Ando (Five Numbers!), and Hajime Katoki with an opening by Koji Morimoto (The Animatrix's Beyond, Memories' Magnetic Rose, Noiseman Sound Insect, Genius Party's Dimension Bomb).
The anthology film will open in 25 theaters across Japan on July 20.
